Our BYOD program begins in Stage 3. It supports and enhances creative thinking and learning opportunities across all key learning areas. All students in Years 5 and 6 require a Windows 10 device. Planning for the BYOD program commences in Term 3 each year. All relevant information is communicated to Year 4 parents via Compass at that time.
We take time to program learning experiences that have technology embedded within them and endeavour to design lessons that include the 21st-century learning dimensions of:
- Real-world problem-solving and innovation
- Use of ICT for learning
- Skilful communication
- Knowledge construction.
The options for purchasing a device for your child are:
OPTION 1: supply/purchase a device personally using the guide below (Requirements).
OPTION 2: purchase a device via Harvey Norman, Kotara using the Hunter Schools BYOD Online Portal.
Place your order online and Harvey Norman will notify you when the device is available for collection. You may wish to visit the store in person to see the devices and order in store – just let them know you are part of the BYOD school purchase program as the prices are discounted.
